    I'm trying to remove the lower portion of the supercharger from my engine but it feels like it's stuck near the front. I took the Intercooler off with all the bolts, the 6 bolts inside the lower portion, the 4 bolts on the outside of the lower portion, fuel rails with injectors, all the coolant lines, and the belt. I used a pry bar lightly and the sides and rear will move some but it feels like there is something still holding it down in the front. Is theres something I'm missing?

    That was it, thanks! I hadn't taken off the pulley so I couldn't see it.
